The highest peak in Maine, Katahdin looms large in Maine's history--and continues to hold great importance in our state, culturally and economically. Not only is it a significant landmark and symbol for Native communities, artists and tourists, it's the northern terminus of the Appalachian Trail and offers abundant opportunities for outdoor recreation.
